Hey 3.5 readers. I’m busy getting to my Christmas stuff but just wanted to throw out some love for this movie. It’s funny and better than your average, run of the mill romantic comedy.
Girl meets boy then finds out he’s rich and she has to struggle to fit in is as old as Cinderella. But this takes it to a new level. Rachel has been dating Nick for a year when he takes her to Singapore for a family meeting only to reveal that he’s the heir apparent of a wealthy hotel/real estate mogul family. They’re rich. Super rich. Crazy rich, even. They spend all their dough on fancy cars and wacky parties, full of vibrant colors and fireworks. But Nick is also Asia’s most eligible bachelor and that makes Rachel unpopular among the babes who want to be in her position.
Awkwafina is the icing on the cake as Rachel’s wacky friend who teaches her how to make it in the crazy rich Asian scene.
Great movie. Worth a rental. Makes me wish I was a crazy rich Asian.
